Moog Music launches the MF-105M MIDI MuRF

The MuRF and Bass MuRF combine in the new MF-1005M MIDI MuRF

Asheville, NC (July 22, 2009) – Can’t decide between the MuRF and Bass MuRF? Get both in one package!

The evolution of the MuRF continues with the MF-105M MIDI MuRF. The MF-105M combines Bob Moog’s classic MuRF and Bass MuRF to make one powerful Moogerfooger. Its warm, resonant, 100% analog Mid and Bass filter bands bring you everything from shimmering timbral morphing and rhythmic stuttering to deep bass grooves, and like all Moogerfoogers, it’s built like a tank to stand up to the toughest touring and studio use.

“MuRF” stands for "Multiple Resonance Filter Array". The MIDI MuRF has 8 filters - their levels are controlled by 8 sliders. It looks like a graphic EQ, but what is really unique is the ability to animate the filters with 24 user-editable sequence patterns. Like the MuRF and Bass MuRF before it, the rate of the patterns can be set by a knob, an expression pedal or with Tap Tempo. Rhythmic variations can be created by adjusting the levels of the filters and the Envelope control sets the shape of the modulation.

We didn’t stop there. In addition to the full range of Control Voltage inputs, it also sports an extensive MIDI implementation. Create tempo-synced filter sequences with MIDI Clock Sync. Change patterns with MIDI Program Change messages. Control front panel knob settings with MIDI CC messages and play the filters in real-time with MIDI Note On commands.

“It’s equally at home on the floor, table-top or rack mount” said Moog Applications Engineer, Amos Gaynes. “With all this sound and control in one package, the MIDI MuRF connects you to a world of sonic expression, with tight integration into today’s performance, production, DJ and remix environments.”
